We stayed here for 8 nights in late March and loved it. Our room was clean and comfortable. Had a small but well equipped kitchen, comfortable king size bed, well lit bathroom with a window, great water pressure, lots of closet space and drawers, ironing board/iron, free wi-fi, large balcony with 3 chairs, table and beach view. The room was bright and spacious. We had been told about the traffic noise when we booked but we barely noticed it. Our room was on the 3rd floor and our balcony over looked the street and beach but when in the room and the AC on, we didn't notice any noise. We had breakfast on the balcony every morning and the traffic noise never bothered us at all. After being out in the fresh air all day, once we got to bed, sleep came easy.
There was a pool, which was clean and a good size. Lots of loungers and chairs and there was plenty of choice if you wanted shade or a sunny spot. The pool was surrounded by a little garden and very relaxing and peaceful.The office had lots of books to read and there was information on all sorts of tours, restaurants etc that you could book at reception. Beach towels were available there also.
The staff, Lara, Audra, and Rachael made you feel at home right away and were remarkably helpful, engaging and friendly. They gave excellent advice about what to see, how to get there, where to eat etc. They really helped us get the most out of our vacation.
The location was incredible! Across the street from from the beach and walking distance to bars (Bert's Bar is right next store), restaurants, grocery stores, a bank, shopping, bus stops.
I can see why Southern Surf has a lot of repeat customers. We booked for next year and repeat customers get a discount on the room rate.
If you're looking for 5 star hotel with all the bells and whistles that go with it, you might not be happy here, but if you're looking for clean, comfortable, affordable accommodations with wonderful staff and excellent location, you'll love it here.
